CEC: Number of Voters 3.47 Million
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 13 Jun.'16 / 20:09

Number of Georgia’s eligible voters stands at 3,473,316, according to figures released by the Central Election Commission on June 13.
 
CEC is responsible for compiling voter lists based on data provided on quarterly basis by the relevant authorities, primarily the Justice Ministry’s Public Service Development Agency.

The election commission will have to release updated figures on number of voters no later than October 3, five days before the parliamentary elections.

Data released by the CEC also includes number of voters in each of the 73 election districts.

Georgia’s election districts have been redrawn to narrow huge discrepancy in size of single-mandate constituencies by merging some small districts and dividing larger ones.

As a result boundaries of single-mandate constituencies no longer coincide with those of administrative borders of municipalities.

Number of voters in each election district varies from 41,598 in the smallest one (Tbilisi’s single-mandate constituency covering mostly the capital city’s Vake district) to 54,168 in the largest one (Rustavi’s one of the two single-mandate constituencies).

Before the redistricting, number of voters was ranging from over 150,000 in the largest one to less than 6,000 in the smallest one.

Lawmakers from the opposition UNM party have challenged the electoral redistricting in the Constitutional Court, claiming that the boundaries were redrawn to the detriment of opposition parties.

The Constitutional Court found the appeal admissible and it is now in the process of its consideration. As an interim measure pending the verdict, applicants also wanted to suspend application of the disputed clauses of the election code, but the request was declined by the Constitutional Court.
